The $33-million sale of the Port Hawkesbury paper mill is complete, and the first paper is expected to roll off the line in the first few days of October. One year after the former NewPage facility in Nova Scotia shut down, the sale to Pacific West Commercial Corp. was completed on Sept. 28. Two hundred and fifty employees returned to work within days.

The mill is restarting under the name Port Hawkesbury Paper.

“In the past three days more than 150 trucks have arrived to supply the mill. We plan to have paper on the reel early next week,” said Ron Stern, owner of Pacific West Commercial.

“We have together embarked on the mission to make Port Hawkesbury Paper the highest quality and most competitive producer of supercalendered paper in North America while at the same time being a great place to work, environmentally responsible and a strong contributor to the province of Nova Scotia,” he continued.

The mill will operate a thermomechanical pulp line and the supercalendared paper line, but not the newsprint line.
